Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
246 PM CDT Mon Mar 27 2017

...Dry through Wednesday Morning...

.DISCUSSION...High pressure will slowly build across the
Upper Mississippi River Valley from tonight into Tuesday.
This high will provide dry weather through Wednesday morning
and then a low pressure system moving east through the Mid
Mississippi River will produce precipitation across the
region from Wednesday into Thursday.  The precipitation will
be primarily rain.  However, temperatures may be cool
enough for either a mix of rain and snow or all snow on
Wednesday night.

Afternoon relative humidities on Tuesday will fall into the
50 to 60 percent range. The winds will be east around 10 mph.
